WITH HIGHER FANTASY 5® PAYOUTS!
TALLAHASSEE - Starting tomorrow, September 7, Florida Lottery announces the launch of the FANTASY 5® Bonus Cash Fridays Promotion. Each Friday during the month of September, the FANTASY 5 prize pool will be increased to include 50% more cash available for prizes!
During the promotional period, FANTASY 5 payouts will increase by 50% for matching 3-of-5, 4-of-5 and 5-of-5 on Fridays only. The prize for matching 2-of-5 will remain one free FANTASY 5 Quick Pick ticket. EZmatch™ prizes are not included in this promotion.
FANTASY 5 is a pari-mutuel game in which players win the top prize by matching 5-of-5 winning numbers drawn in any order. Additionally, players win cash prizes or a free Quick Pick ticket by matching two, three or four of the numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. If there is no top prize winner, the money in the top prize pool rolls down and is shared among players who match 4-of-5 or 3-of-5 winning numbers.
Since the game's inception, more than 830 million FANTASY 5 winners have won more than $4.4 billion in prizes. Of these, more than 52,000 players have won top prizes totaling more than $2.4 billion. The game has contributed more than $3.4 billion to education in Florida.
